changes alone are simply not enough. ms. markel saying germany simply cannot accept a solution under which pension funds assets will be nationalized. >> kelly, this is down to the wide. this is a last ditch attempt, but we only have three days left to find a solution. back over to you. >> carolin, thanks very much for that. it is interesting because cyprus has reached this agreement with the troika. a, because that's what they would like and, b, russia is not going to give them the funds to otherwise raise the money that's needed. a cypriot spokesman has confirmed that the country's finance minister left moscow. steve sedgwick is calling in on the line from moscow. steve, russia is happy to stand pat while cyprus try toes come up with a solution. >> what we're going to get is an announcement from the european commission and the russian federation. this is looking at a whole host of longer term issue between the european union and is russia. the relationship needs a reboost after disagreements over syria, over trade, over the wto, over human rights and now, of course, most aggressively of c
altogether. now, speaking of which, as expected, no change in policy in the boj this time around. investors are looking forward to a new regime change at the central bank when a new chief comes on board. if all goes well, kuroda could be confirmed next week. many expect the central bank to release fresh moves. is this then the calm before the storm? we'll have analysis on just what the new governor has up his sleeve live at 10:20 cet. first, though, check on markets in asia. li sixuan joins us from asia. we just talked about the bank of japan. what was the market reaction? >> thank you the despite the dow racking up another record high, asian bourses were. the boj may be bracing for bolder actions under the new governor at its next meeting in april. the nikkei 225 rose briefly ending a fresh 4 1/2 year high and ended up 0.3%. olympus shares made solid gains today, up 5.5% after the nikkei business daily said the company ames to slash interest bearing dead with around $1 billion for the year. in china, investors remained cautious with key economic data out due out tomorrow and this weekend.
in the changes clients are looking for? >> i think there isn't much property around. so the fact that we've seen less people buying with bonuses hasn't affected the market. we're still seeing prices rise. >> what's the supply like? >> people are not selling, partly possibly because they're being cautious and staying in the market. people are staying put because they can't find somewhere else to go to. >> is it also because there has been an influx of investor buyers or long-term -- i mean, if long -- central london has become a safe haven for int international money, those people presumably stick it there and walk away, right? >> yes, i would agree with that. but lots of that money has got into property and the flats. let's say they're sort of working finance family looking for. they're looking for family homes and, you know, in these areas and where are they going to find themselves having to move out of villages or further out and further out or we certainly are after town. and given how prices are going to go, by the end of the year, they'll probably be about 10% ahead of the peak in prime ce
on the rand to the dollar. >> last question, has there been any change in correlation between the emerging markets doing well because they're tied to rash ya and china relative to the u.s.? meaning who is the strong -- who is powering the global economy at this point? >> china is still the most significant. i think the one thing which is getting missed on the chinese slowdown is if it slows to 7 1/2 this year, it's going to be a bigger gdp lift in 2013 than in 2012 even if the headline growth number is slower. it's still china, which is playing a massive role. >> and still russia, which has some interesting times ahead, we shall say, but you like the story? >> we're bullish on russia and bullish on africa. >> we'll leave it there. charles robinson joining us, chief economist. thank you very much. >>> we'll be hearing from one of russia's most powerful men in an exclusive interview today. that's coming up on closing bell. make sure you tune in from about 1700 cet. >>> still ahead on "worldwide exchange," well, europe's periphery be granted wiggle room when it comes to meeting deficit target
're continuing to follow the latest out of cypress on this story. it's fast moving. details keep changing. the cypriot government says the country's parliament is unlikely to pass legislation which would impose a tax on bank deposits. lawmakers are set to meet and vote on the levy which has been set on a condition of the eu bailout. meanwhi meanwhile, the german finance minister has rushed to the defense of a highly unpopular tax. the move was necessary to keep cyprus from sharing in the burden of a eu bailout. and uncertainty over the outcome of the vote in nicosia continues to weigh on markets. cyprus said its stock exchange will trading until thursday. cypriot banks have been placed on negative watch. carolin roth is reporting now for us. the latest we're hearing is that the vote may not happen today. what can you tell us? >> absolutely. there are a lot of moving parts still, kelly. this is a very fluid situation. the vote is scheduled to happen at 6:00 p.m. local time. there has been no official cancellation on part of the government. but, again, a government spokesperson at the same
to change the structure, this investment program. the key is that contributions amount to 578 billion euros and cypriot banks have access to liquidity. is it the case that come tuesday, post this bank holiday, that the ecb was basically going to close the door and say, sorry, no more liquidity, no more temporary emergency assistance after this date? >> the ecb remains there and the back stop will be there. if you look at that in reverse, there is obviously a threat. the question is whether if the vote doesn't go through, whether the ecb will turn around and said now we're going to turn off the liquidity taps and the ela. that's one of the things that cypress has to battle with right now. it's most definitely a question. but, of course, what you were talking about there, the suggestion we got from brussels on saturday morning was that the troika officials were happy, irrespective of how those levies were implemented as long as they got that 5.8 billion euros out of it. so it was the cypriots themselves allegedly that were trying to keep that high, the levy below 10%, 9.9%. and is then, of co
is not easy. they have different dimensions, different characteristics, circumstances change. i think this is a good deal. it addresses the issues more fundamentally and decisively and creates the prospect for a better future. >> that relationship is effectively over? >> no. i don't think it's over. in fact, i was just in russia and there were as many people who said we have been with you through good times and we're going to stay with you through bad times. and there have been others, of course, who said we are disappointed and maybe we look somewhere else. but, you know, we have very deep relation relations. russian people and middle class people that use cyprus because of the rule of law, common law, the double tax treaties we have. it's a mistake to think that it is a very special class, of very rich people. these russians have their lawyers, their accountants, many of them have their families living in cyprus. they have their friends. we have a relationship that can with stand a shock like this. >> bearing that in mind, are the banks going to open on tuesday morning? >> i cannot

changed after results and what it says today? >> nothing has changed. this is a company which has revolutionized clothing retail. model is strong. big competitive advantage which gets bigger with very high barriers to entry. within the last three years we have seen growth 20%. going forward it will be 15%. that's understandable considering the kind of base of comparison becomes bigger and bigger. 6% is above their own long-term projections. that level of growth was going to be unsustainable over the longer term. that said, you are still looking at a solid growth of 15% earnings for the next few years. >> you talked about retail becoming polarized and there have been -- it matters greatly whose horse you have been on. if you had bought and sold in the last couple years you would have done great. is it time for rotation? h & m has come forward with the line in london that's more upscale. new line and other stores they are launched. massive investment. are they starting to get it? any reason why them being cheaper and underperformed investors may want to rotate? >> a lot of reasons f
falling, it has basically stood pat and i wonder if this doesn't begin to change sentiment around it coming out and starting to cut rates further. >> well, they did say they would do whatever it took to ensure thor row zone and the euro was secure. in which case, maybe it's time for them to make good on that promise. >> one final point before we talk china with regard to this data. do you get a sense of what's driving the weakness here? is it just fundamentally there's no demand, this is a weak economy and we're in this negative spiral? >> there's no command on the back of data and shows that business optimism in the eurozone is also pretty weak. but yes, we listen to demand. eurozone country trade with each other. if they're all doing pretty weak, that will have a knock on effect across the region. periphery outside of the big two economies down to an acceleration and even germany slowing and with the manufacturing sector unexpectedly contracting. >> we have people saying maybe by tend of the year, spain or greece or maybe some of these harder hit peripheral economies not seeing

's a growing idea that when we get the change of leadership at the bank of england and maybe related to that we're going to get some reformulation of the monetary framework away from strict inflation targeting to maybe bringing in some nominal gdp targing or allowing some overshoot to compensate for previous periods when there was undershoot. so these sort of concerns that the whole discipline is going to be loosening even further. that's a concern. >> are they going to come out with sort of a fed statement, you know, don't worry, rates will stay low for two years? is it going to go down that? >> maybe not so -- pretty well on that route, anyway. i think the other background factor here is that the bank of canada president is coming in to run the bank of england, we know now that canada has been very much a bubble economy which is already beginning to burst. and that's one of the features in today's market, that the dollar is weak and we're getting weak economic data. so we're coming in with a record of being the bubble president. >> brendan, good to see you. thanks so much indeed for joining u
